Inserra, C.; Fraser, M.; Smartt, S. J.; Benetti, S.; Chen, T. -W.; Childress, M.; Gal-Yam, A.; Howell, D. A.; Kangas, T.; Pignata, G.; Polshaw, J.; Sullivan, M.; Smith, K. W.; Valenti, S.; Young, D. R.; Parker, S.; Seccull, T.; McCrum, M.


We present the complete set of ultra-violet, optical and near-infrared photometry and spectroscopy for SN 2012ca, covering the period from 6~days prior to maximum light, until 531 days after maximum. The spectroscopic time series for SN 2012ca is essentially unchanged over 1.5 years, and appear to be dominated at all epochs by signatures of interaction with a dense circumstellar medium rather than the underlying supernova (SN). At late phases, we see a near infrared excess in flux which...[Show more]
